The Mauri Nottingham Excellence in Environmental Sustainability Scholarship program


The Town of Vail is pleased to announce The Mauri Nottingham Excellence in Environmental Sustainability Scholarship program.  In 1993, The Town of Vail created the Mauri Nottingham Environmental Quality Award to honor the creator of the valley’s “We Recycle” program and recognize outstanding environmental programs or efforts in the community.  The new scholarship program intends to honor the contributions of Mr. Nottingham, continue the legacy of the Environmental Quality Award, and provide assistance to those in the community wishing to further their education in the field of environmental sustainability. 


This scholarship will be awarded to cover the cost of tuition and supplies up to $1500 dollars and is open to Town of Vail residents, students who attend school in the Town of Vail, or those who are employed in the Town of Vail.  Academic programs can include bachelors or certificate programs at accredited colleges or universities, online programs, or attendance at local symposiums.
